Axis & Allies Pacific 1940 Previews at

AA25Pacific.jpgOur friends over at have started a drum up to this year's biggest A&A release: Axis & Allies Pacific 1940. The first two articles are a series of images of the components of the game, including detailed images of the various factions' unit sculptures, the board, the rules, national setups, the works:

  1. A&A Pacific 1940 Preview 1: Japan Units, Box, Rulebook, and Bits
  2. A&A Pacific 1940 Preview 2: Units and Setup for USA, ANZAC, UK, and China

And they promise that there's more info to come as we approach Axis & Allies Pacific 1940's release on December 15th.

Just a quick lowdown on the game: this installment is essentially the spirited offspring Axis and Allies Anniversary Limited Edition drilled-down to the Pacific Theater only. It features rules and large format board just like it's predecessor, but will hopefully have a more extensive production run (last year's 50th Edition is selling for 170 bucks + these days).

Then next year, in an exciting move, Avalon Hill will release a second installment for the European theater. Nigh-official scuttlebut has it that this European edition will be compatible with this Pacific Edition, and combining the two will create the largest most epic A&A experience to date.
